Happy New Year Everyone! miXx is excited to release even more awesome dance covers in 2017! Start 2017 right and check out our newest cover of Girls' Generation - You Think!
In this blogpost, We interviewed the project choreoleaders, Victor and Nicole, and our graduating senior, Emily, about "You Think!"
Can you share why you decided to cover SNSD’s You Think?
Victor: “ “You Think" was on my bucket list of projects to do for a long time. When it wasn't picked for second cycle, I decided to make it a side project along with Nicole. Also, who doesn't love Kyle Hanagami's choreography for this dance!? It's fierce and sassy that's just right for this song. I love it.”
Nicole: “As Victor said, he's been wanting to do this project for so long so I when I heard about it I asked to co-chereo lead and that's how I became involved. Actually before Victor mentioned it, I wasn't a fan of the song, but as I kept listening to it, I ended up really loving the song and the choreo.”
What are some of the best moments during this project?
Victor: “The best moment would hands down have to be during our last practice before recording when the speaker died in the beginning of the song. But the rest of the cast just continued dancing until the very end with our non-existent acapella/singing skills. It was hilarious but I was also glad to see how everything went well together although we didn't have the music in the background, but our internal beat and voices basically guided us the whole time. I can watch that practice video over and over again and laugh about it until I die.”
Nicole: “Every time Quinn did her solo lol. But I also agree with Victor, the time when our audio shut off and we all had to sing while dancing with no music. Our singing was awful haha but it was really fun and we actually were so in sync.”
Emily (SHA’17), dancing as Yuri in the video, will be graduating this semester and "You Think" is her last miXx project! We want to congratulate Emily for her graduation and wish her all the best for her future pursuits! Emily has not only been an active member in miXx ever since the club’s founding in 2013, she was also the Vice President of miXx ’15-’16. Read more below as Emily shares some of her memories in miXx! We will miss you Emily!
What do you think you will definitely miss in miXx?
Emily: "I will absolutely miss the people most. You will hear this from anyone you talk to in miXx, but we really are a family. Even though I was not able to be as active this year, every time I did go to practice it felt like going home. From all the amazing opportunities of recording videos, performing, being on
E-Board, and just hanging out with miXx members, I feel so lucky to have experienced everything this club has to offer. When I joined miXx four years ago, I had no idea how much it would grow. I have made lifelong friends and I can’t express how thankful I am that miXx was such a major part of my college experience. I can’t wait to see the amazing things you guys will achieve in the next couple years!"
Can you share you experience in the “You Think” project?
Emily: “You Think” was an amazing project to be a part of. One thing that makes miXx so great is that we have a lot of freedom as members. “You Think” was a side project so it was just a group of us that really wanted to cover the song. It’s always great to work with people who are so passionate about a dance that they want to put in the extra effort to make it their own project. Victor and Nicole were great at leading the project and all of the members worked hard during practices but we also had a lot of fun. As a SNSD song was my first miXx project, it only seems fitting that “You Think” was my last one."
